Lesson 1 Family. Working Day

1. Express a surprise in connection with the statements given below.

Model: — You have just had your supper.

— Have I? I haven’t had my supper yet.

1. You have just come home from school.

2. Your brother has just cleaned his room.

3. Your aunt has just watched TV.

4. Your uncle has just gone to sleep.

5. Your grandparents have just done morning exercises.

6. You have just taken a shower.

2. Read the text and tell about your working day.


I’d like to tell you about my weekdays during my final year at school.

On weekdays my working day began early in the morning. I don’t like to get up early, but I got used to it.

I usually got up at about 7 o’clock. Then I did my morning exercises and went to the bathroom to wash my face and hands with soap and clean my teeth with toothpaste. At a quarter past seven I was ready to have my breakfast. As a rule, I had a quick light breakfast which consisted of a cup of coffee or tea, a boiled egg or an omelette and a cheese or sausage sandwich. After breakfast I put on my coat, took my bag and left for school.

As my school is not far from my house, it took me 10 minutes to get there. I never took a bus or a trolleybus on my way to school.

I usually had six or seven lessons a day. I loved all my subjects at school, because our teachers were highly qualified and enthusiastic. They always knew how to stimulate us to study and how to develop our intellectual curiosity.

The classes at school were over at about three o’clock. Sometimes I stayed at school after classes to play basketball or table tennis or to take part in any other after school activities.

When I came home I had dinner. My mother always cooked delicious dishes for me. After my dinner I went out with my friends. On rainy days I stayed at home and listened to music, watched TV or played computer games. At about 8 o’clock in the evening I started doing my home assignments. I had to work hard at all the subjects as it was my final year at school.

I did well in most school subjects, but I had to have private lessons in English and Mathematics as I wanted to enter the university.

As a rule, I took a shower or a bath late in the evening and at about 11.30 p.m. I went to bed.

3. Read Ann’s letter about her uncle and aunt.

Dear friend,

My uncle Den and aunt Polly are a lovely and imaginative couple. They love sports and travelling very much. They have just come from the trip round the world. They are happy because they have visited a lot of countries: France, Germany, the USA, Canada, Australia and others.

When they are in their village, their daily schedule is a little boring, I think. They usually get up at 8 a.m., take a shower, have breakfast and leave for work. My aunt is a nurse in the village hospital, and my uncle is a construction worker. They have lunch at their places of work. At about 5 or 6 p.m. they come back home. They have supper, watch TV or read a newspaper and at 10 p.m. they go to bed.

But during their trip around the world everything was different. They got up very early, had their breakfast and went on excursions. They managed to see Eiffel Tower in France, attend Dresden Gallery in Germany, enjoy the attractions of Disney Land in the USA, swim in the five Great Lakes in Canada, and ride a cangaroo in Australia.

My cousin Susan and her husband Tom didn’t travel with them, because they have a baby, my nephew. He is a lovely, funny and cute boy. He always looks and smiles at me. Will you tell me, please, about your aunt’s family?

Write me soon.



4. Look at the pictures and say what Ann’s aunt and uncle do in the village and what they have done during the trip.

5. Read Ann’s letter about her grandparents.

Dear friend,

In this letter I’d like to tell you about the people who brought me up. They are my grandmother and grandfather. My grandfather passed away 5 years ago. He was a good-natured and easy-going person. It was very difficult for my granny to get over the death of my grandfather. I suppose that only her strong will helped her overcome all the difficulties. She still works, though she is 62. She is a hard working and organized woman. I have a high opinion of her.

In general, my relatives live in Chernigiv, Mykolayiv, Ternopil, Odesa and in some villages. They are all different but lovely people. We live friendly with them and when we have time we visit them.

Do you love your grandparents? Write me about them, OK?



6. Discuss in groups of 3 or 4:

1) the way you show respect and gratitude to people who brought you up;

2) ideal relations with relatives.

7. Look at the pictures and describe them. Then, in pairs express your opinion about:

a) the advantages and disadvantages of each type of family;

b) the problems the children in each type of family might have;

c) how each family compares to your own.

8. Write a reply to Ann’s letters (exercises 3 and 5).
